Alten build a fourth electric shuttle for ICADE in Paris city

Facing a permanent increase of the number of passengers using the three existing shuttles - 1,200,000 users in 2012, 4000 h/year per shuttle - ICADE has ordered Alternatives Energies a fourth zero emission ferry.

This shuttle, called FLANDRE has been delivered and put into service in order to increase the fleet capacity to 2 millions passengers.

Unlike the previous ferries which use NiCd batteries, FLANDRE is fitted with Lithium LSFP build by SAFT. Hence, the capacity has been extended to 85 passengers (+10) without any weight increase.
